  • Get a haircut, Help A Hero during Sport Clips’ scholarships for veterans campaign
    When you get a haircut at one of the more than 1,200 Sport Clips across the country, you can “help a hero” at the same time by donating to the company’s Help A Hero program now through November 11, Veterans Day. Over the next four weeks, Sport Clips’ locations nationwide will have a collective goal of raising $600,000 for the company’s annual fundraising program that provides scholarship money to veterans. Since 2007, the company has partnered with the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) to support service members, and last year, created the “Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship” program to help service members and veterans in the next chapter of their lives. Each scholarship provides up to $5,000 of assistance to service members and veterans who are pursuing an education at post-secondary institutions, including trade schools.
